According to Lisa Frazier, Executive General Manager Digital Channels, Commonwealth Bank, the watch is a natural extension of the CommBank app.

“Smart watches represent the next exciting generation of personal mobile devices. We are at the start of a new way of banking and together with our customers’ passion for mobile and cardless banking, we will lead in developing ways to fully leverage the capabilities of smart watches.
“For example, we will be including one of CommBank app’s most popular features, Cardless Cash as a transactional capability – making us the first of the Bank’s to offer this feature,” said Ms Frazier.
